City opens select sports fields


The City of Saint John has made select sports fields available for use.  Many of these fields are not yet ready for game play but they are accessible for our sports user groups as they prepare for their seasons.      
Sports fields are on track to be made available for game play by early July.  Rental fees will be charged when they are prepared for game play.
Sports user groups must have and follow Operational Plans to access City sports fields.  Physical distancing, subject to Operational Plans, is required.  Hand washing facilities will not always be available.  Other requirements to keep each other safe at these facilities with COVID-19 are posted on site.
Field schedules are being maintained so user groups can plan their use.
Fields and facilities will be open as long as users adhere to the requirements as set out by the Chief Medical Officer, in accordance with the provincial recovery plan and as listed on signage.
